The Feds are complaining that those experiencing economic difficulties don’t ask for a lot of help from….the government.
The government assistance website, USA.gov, helpfully and cheerfully reminds us that
“Given that only 15 percent of you turn to government assistance in tough times, we want to make sure you know about benefits that could help you,” USA.gov announced today. The ”government made easy’ website has created a “help for difficult financial times” page for people to learn more about the programs.
As if we don’t have enough deficit already.
So, let me get this straight:
The economic downturn has financially burdened millions of Americans
The (government) solution is to seek assistance from the very administsration and policies who have prolonged and stymied our recovery?
